DIY Holiday Gifts They’ll Be Excited to Unwrap

December 13, 2019

Between the shopping and the parties, the hectic holiday season can really start to take its toll on your stamina—and your wallet! This year, keep your wallet full—and your stress level at a minimum—by making your own holiday gifts. Not only will your friends and family enjoy a meaningful gift made just for them, they’ll appreciate the love and attention that went into its making. Here are a few DIY gift ideas to consider.

Put together a gift basket. Want to really impress your loved ones this year? Assemble a gift basket tailored to their hobbies and interests! For the foodie, for example, you could fill a wicker basket with a dish towel, oven mitt, gourmet non-perishables, and a cook book. For the gardener, you could put together a basket containing gardening gloves, a beautiful planter, and some flower seeds. 

Whip up some sweet treats. Few people can resist a homemade treat, especially during the holiday season! From fudge and caramels to cookies and brownies, made-from-scratch sweets are always a hit during the holidays, especially when packaged in a whimsical holiday tin or box.

Present them with a spa experience. Given that the holidays can be so busy, a little R&R makes the perfect gift. Homemade sugar scrubs, bath bombs, and soaps aren’t too difficult to make yourself, and they allow your loved ones to enjoy a spa experience right at home.
